Yes, because while Republicans are down with smaller Government, it is on the non-"morals" agencies: EPA, DOE, Education, SEC, OMB, IRS, etc etc, and agencies or funded programs that don't support their agenda, primarily Planned Parenthood and any Arts programs.  We must cut costs at any expense... except when the cutting of costs will interfer with campaign contributions.


Exactly.  Vote accordingly.

I found out that contrary to what I'd been told, nobody has ever died from using marijuana in the thousands of years this plant has been available. In fact, I had no idea that its medical use dated back to around 2700 B.C. and was called a "superior" herb by the Emperor Shen-Nung (2737-2697 B.C.). I discovered that while I had been demonizing marijuana, thousands of people worldwide had been quietly and effectively curing or relieving a multitude of health problems, including Crohn's disease, migraine headaches, chronic depression, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), insomnia, dementia, epileptic seizures, Parkinson's disease and even AIDS. The more I researched and talked to pro-cannabis physicians, patients, researchers and historians who studied the plant, the more I heard incredible testimonials of recovery from illnesses and mental imbalances in addition to, as one patient told me, "just a better outlook on life."

And that's when I uncovered information that really challenged the stories I'd been told. People were using this "weed" to get off of opiates, alcohol, tobacco, heroin, cocaine and other powerful drugs. Thus, it was gaining traction as "an exit drug," instead of the "gateway drug." Seniors were also secretly using it to improve their cognition. Wait...what? How is that possible? Didn't marijuana make you a "brain-dead loser"? No, not according to the scientific data I discovered. The opposite was true as researchers found that the plant allowed neurogenesis in the brain -- the growth of new neural pathways, even when the brain had been damaged by age or trauma.

Just what the sane people have been saying since the 60's.

The "big lie" is what DuPont and Hearst used for decades, and the effort renewed up by Nixon with his "war on drugs".  (His actual phrase was "war on drug abuse").  And now we suffer this massive unwarranted government intrusion into people's private lives.  Amazing how that phrase has become so warped and twisted around by the RWRE...

Former Police Chief Melvin Fisher



Free after his suspended 10-year sentence for dealing meth, he is in his own prison.
And you have to wonder why OBNDD makes marijuana a higher priority.

This is what a New York blogger I read had to say about good ol Mel's picture.

Eww gross dude. Clean it up. Youíre getting your picture taken for f*ckís sake. Sure it looks like you just opened the Arc of the Convenant and your face is melting like at the end of Indiana Jones, but how about a smile? No seriously whatís this guyís diet? AIDS? Is he eating 3 squares of AIDS every day? Or did he turn anorexic because his boyfriend in jail called him fat? Both very viable possibilities.

I think it was an old Saturday Night Live skit where they introduced the "Slim-Crash" diet.  Very simple - and oh, so effective... 

Diet plan;

A deep breath of air for breakfast.
A deep breath of air and a glass of water for lunch.
A sensible Marlboro cigarette for dinner.

Seriously, it's on a government website (so it's gotta be true).  Grin

Spoiler alert: No, you can't get your pot back if it was previously seized.
